The country's capital, Guatemala City, is situated roughly 150 kilometres to the east of Champerico.
If you've got ample time, why not head to a few close-by places? Retalhuleu and San Sebastian are 35 kilometres and 40 kilometres away, respectively.
Whether it's for some shopping or to explore the sights, locals and visitors alike often make the journey to Quetzaltenango, 75 kilometres to the northeast. Quetzaltenango Cathedral, Quetzaltenango Central Park and Cerro El Baul National Park are all within a stone's throw. Of course, don't miss out on the Los Altos Railroad Museum and Trama Textiles either.
There's a whole new world of amazing flavours waiting to dance across your taste buds in Retalhuleu. With so many tempting things to eat and drink, all you need to bring with you is your appetite — and perhaps your stretchiest denims.
Are you keen to know some of the traditional ingredients used in cooking here? Prepare to taste beans (frijoles) and chicken in many of your meals.
While Champerico is home to an assortment of scrumptious foods, you shouldn't leave without tasting chiles rellenos (bell peppers stuffed with meat and vegetables) and gallo en chicha (chicken stew). Considered local specialties, you'll need to put them on your must-eat list if you really want a true taste of the region.
'Stressed' spelled backwards is 'desserts', and that's no coincidence. There's no better way to let your worries melt away than with coconut flan, a sweet treat that's often found on dining tables here.
It's impossible to get the full travelling experience until you've had a sip of the local brew. Whether you'd like to wet your whistle or get a bit of liquid courage to meet new people, order Victoria.
Do you like talking about the structure, texture and balance of a tasty drop of wine? Or do you prefer to pull the cork out and just drink it? Château DeFay White Merlot and Château DeFay Cabernet Sauvignon/Merlot are what you should ask for here.
"Hasta la vista" doesn't need to be so final. Why not keep a few Guatemalan quetzals for your next holiday here?
Making it to your flight on time can sometimes be stressful. That said, you'll be fine if you've made a plan. The nearest terminal, El Salvador International Airport (SAL), is 320 kilometres to the east.
